Application of the frequency symbolic method for analysis of established modes of linear periodically time-variable (LPTV) circuits to solving an optimization task conditioned by the control of their asymptotic stability is considered. The results of optimization of a parametric balanced modulator with respect to the criterion which is based on calculation of the parametric transfer functions approximated by Fourier trigonometric polynomials are presented.
The positivity and asymptotic stability of discrete-time and continuous-time nonlinear systems are addressed. Sufficient conditions for the positivity and asymptotic stability of the nonlinear systems are established. The proposed stability tests are based on an extension of the Lyapunov method to the positive nonlinear systems. The effectiveness of the tests are demonstrated on examples.
